What is AppAssessment
AppAssessment is a tool you can leverage with your application in OpenShift.
You can use AppAssessment to make sure the namespace in OpenShift where your application is hosted is configured properly. The checks completed by AppAssessment determine whether your application follows service reliability and resource utilization best practices.
Following an assessment, AppAssessment will provide an easy-to-read report that outlines where your application is properly configured and where there are issues, including missing or misconfigured settings. In the report, AppAssessment will also provide links to documentation you can use to fix any errors that are identified.
This is a custom-developed tool that we built for product teams working on the B.C. Government Private Cloud PaaS. If you have any suggestions for additional checks that should be included in AppAssessment, please let us know in the #app-assessment channel in Rocket.Chat.
Improved service reliability
AppAssessment verifies that your application has liveness and readiness probes configured. These probes check your containers to determine if they are running properly and are ready to receive incoming network traffic.
Effective resource usage
AppAssessment can help you effectively manage your memory and CPU allocation to make sure your resources are meeting the needs of your application.
AppAssessment verifies that your containers meet the B.C. Government Private Cloud PaaS’s deployment best practices. It’ll also check whether the recommended OpenShift configurations have been used in your application.
Who can use it
AppAssessment is currently only available for applications hosted in the Silver hosting tier cluster.
When to use it
We recommend that you start evaluating your application using AppAssessment as soon as your application is deployed to OpenShift.
